News – Madoc – Centre Hastings council members and their staff held a budget meeting at noon on February 26 and their regular month end meeting in the evening. More deliberations need to be done on the capital budget. Requests for $45,000 worth of donations were reviewed. In 2013 council donated a total of $30,517 to local non-profit groups. The requests exceed the projected budget of $28,650 with the addition of a request from Camp-

bellford Hospital Foundation for $5,000 and $10,000 for the Kiwanis boat launch improvement project, and $350 for the dog park. The Madoc Off Leash dog Park Association requested, in writing, a long-term lease and zoning amendment for the dog park location at the last meeting of council. Park organizers argued some ‘agreement’ of land usage for a set period of time would be a benefit to all, noting potential financial supporters were concerned about municipal commitment.

News – Madoc – The efforts of numerous volunteers and friends of the Central Hastings Support Network helped raise an estimated $2,000 for the community service non-profit organization. The money was raised as part of the Spring Thing fashion show hosted by the agency as one of three fundraising events throughout the year. Elegant men’s clothing from Lafferty’s of Belleville matched well with ladies fashion from Robyn Dowsett’s collection of “pre-loved clothing� found at her Belleville store, the Second Debut. Stage show organizer, volunteer Mary Stewart, coordinated her 15 amateur models into three sectors of business casual, casual and formal wear presentations, precisely timed with musical accompaniment. Madoc’s Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corp. members helped with service and gift presentations while others presented a dessert table for patrons. A last-minute addition to the entertainment was a showing by Madoc’s School of Dance Arts performing three routines to the delight of supporters.

Sunflower Festival proposed


By Richard Turtle

News – Stirling - Local resident and businessperson Tina Koonings is hoping to bring a little sunshine to the community later this year. Koonings appeared before council earlier this week to ask for their support and outline potential plans for a late summer Sunflower Festival. While still in the early stages, she told council, plans for the annual event would ultimately include numerous special events and activities involving local service clubs and organizations as well as area residents. The festival could also attract residents from outside the area. Intended to “showcase the village, increase club membership, highlight the diversity of the community and bring in visitors,� Koonings hopes to organize the first Stirling Sunflower Festival over a weekend in August or September. Several events, she adds, could be hosted in

The gals had their own choices from traditional to contemporary pop tunes. Make up for the ladies was done by Mary Kay product representatives Tabitha Spicer and Laurie Roy. CHSN managing director Jean McDonnell said the agency is “grateful to all the volunteers� for making the evening a success. The next fundraising event is the ‘Whole darn town of Madoc yardsale� on the May long weekend, followed by the art show the second weekend of August. Numerous items were donated for ticket draws and door prizes. ManagFor information about the ing director Jean McDonnell of CHSN calls out numbers while models Jane agency call 613-473- 5255.

village parks or other public places and residents would be encouraged to participate in a festival-ending sunflower contest with several categories. Stirling-Rawdon Mayor Rodney Cooney thanked Koonings for her presentation noting, “I think council will support you,� but added there are many details to consider and the appropriate officials should be informed of developments to avoid any conflicts with other events. Council paved the way for an administrative move by making a formal request to the Police Services Board to approve plans to house the municipal offices in the joint police fire facility. Having declared the current offices as surplus, municipal officials have already determined the feasibility of the move but require approval from the governing board, Cooney says. Municipal tax bills sent to all Stirling-Rawdon ratepayers may have raised a few eyebrows but council says it was merely a clerical error and residents can be assured that this year’s taxes are not already a year overdue. “All the other information is correct,� says Treasurer Roxanne Hearns of recently issued municipal tax bills, but adds as a result of an oversight the due dates are incorrectly listed as 2013. Local residents can dis-

pose of dead batteries in their blue boxes in coming weeks as the municipality participates in a recycling program designed to divert the waste from landfill sites for recycling purposes. Councilor Grant Hagerman told council that local residents are among nine municipalities participating in the program and all should have received a re-sealable plastic bag specifically for proper disposal of dead batteries. The bags can be included with other blue box contents from March10 – 21. The batteries collected through the program, Hagerman adds, are all being recycled. A similar program conducted last fall resulted in the collection of 10,000 pounds of batteries that, he says, would have otherwise ended up in landfill sites. A recent Ontario Good Roads conference in Toronto proved Stirling-Rawdon may be “ahead of the curve,� says Cooney. “There was good information and lots of contacts,� Cooney told his fellow councilors earlier this week, adding much discussion focused on the sharing of services in order to reduce costs. “There was a big emphasis on shared services,� he says of smaller municipalities, adding communities with more than 100,000 residents “are talking about the same thing.�

Lifestyles – Tweed – A variety of fun learning experiences will be provided to area kids and their parents over the March school break at the Tweed library. Several of the activities already have all spaces ďŹ lled, says Corinne Reidy, who has been program developer at the library for about a year and a half. A similar program was offered last year, but “we didn’t have as many activities last year. Some of them will be open to parents as well as children,â€? Reidy adds. March break begins early this year notes Reidy, since Friday, March 7, the last weekday before the break, is a PA day at local schools. From 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. that day the library will host a workshop on making ďŹ nger puppets. “Bonnie Marentette will be running this. She’s a retired home economics teacher. She’ll be mak-

ing ďŹ nger puppets with felt, and there’ll be a bit of sewing in it,â€? Reidy explained. “Her class is full, and they’ve got 16 people.â€? On the following day a class on making jewellery will be offered by Cindy Crowson. “She’s fabulous,â€? remarks Ms. Reidy, adding “she is a retired RCMP ofďŹ cer. She has her own shop in Napanee I believe. Everyone around here knows her as “the jewellery lady.â€? Crowson had been involved in projects at the library when they had a New Horizons grant (“which we will be getting againâ€?) to allow seniors to teach their craft to children. There are still spaces available in Ms. Crowson’s class. “All classes are free and that helps bring people here because a lot of people can’t afford things,â€? notes Reidy. A “Making Elastic Braceletsâ€? class will be offered on Tuesday, March 11 at 1 p.m. Creative elastic bracelets are “all the rage these daysâ€? Ms.

Foxie Foxie is a gorgeous dark tortoiseshell. She is a loving friendly cat. Foxie has quite a story for a young lady. She was abandoned at a feral colony when she was less than one year old. When the colony caretaker passed away, Cat Care Spay Neuter Initiative (CCSNI) was asked to trap, neuter and relocate this colony (not something we recommend or do often). We found a responsible feral colony caretaker who agreed to give six cats a new home after they were neutered. Foxie was living outside with the feral colony until she recently decided to move inside at her foster home. She is very affectionate and sweet. Foxie would really love to have a forever home where she can always be inside with her human family. Like all of our other rescued cats she needs a â&#x20AC;&#x153;foreverâ&#x20AC;?home. Many of the feral cat stories would make you sad but it is the goal of CCSNI to trap, spay


and neuter (TNR) as many feral cats as we can and turn their lives around for those who can be socialized and find them a good home. The feral cats are often returned to their colony where they will live out their lives without having any more kittens or contributing to the overpopulation of unwanted cats. We have an adoption process and ask a fee of $125 for kittens and $100 for cats, which helps cover the costs of spay and neutering and vaccinations. It is only a fraction of the cost so that is why we ask for donations too and do fundraising on a regular basis. This month our adoption fees are reduced to $75.00 for kittens and $50.00 for cats. We are all volunteers who care about feral, free roaming, homeless and abandoned cats. For more information call Suzanne at 705559-1899 or Donna at 905-355-5164 I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always have everyone on the website so call to see if we have the perfect kitten or cat for you.

Council passed an agreement (Bylaw 2014-19) this week allowing use of a three-acre parcel of land on the east side of Burnside Street for the park use over a ten-year period. The municipality notes the park will be assessed annually for the ďŹ rst three years of operation based on public health concerns, number and severity of any complaints, risk management, soil impact and non-compliance to municipal laws. The bylaw includes a statement that the municipality may terminate the project if serious concerns cannot be resolved. The bylaw to transfer management of the Tri-Area Medical Centre building over to the municipality was given a ďŹ nal reading and passed after an amendment directed by Deputy Mayor Tom Simpson that all donations go towards equipment. At the February 12 regular meeting of council, Councillor Shelby KrampNeuman questioned what elements water testing focuses on. She stated she had heard concerns that something in Madoc water may contribute to Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Dr. Richard Schabas, Chief Medical OfďŹ cer of Health for Hastings County, responded to an inquiry by staff. Schabas noted that though the incidence of MS in Canada is relatively high, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for reasons that are not understood,â&#x20AC;? he is not aware of any evidence linking MS to drinking water. Public works superintendent, Roger Taylor reported to council back in December that his staff had identiďŹ ed â&#x20AC;&#x153;increased pump ratesâ&#x20AC;? at the Rollins Well, suggesting a potential leak in the distribution system. On February 12 Taylor was absent from the 3 p.m. meeting of council advising them a â&#x20AC;&#x153;substantial leak had been detectedâ&#x20AC;? at a valve on an eight inch water main running north on the west side of Russel Street. After considerable consultation with

Another class will teach the art of making of sugar-cube castles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lady I know is volunteering and making up kits for this and she has done a lot of prep work for the kids,â&#x20AC;? Reidy observes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making little bags that have all the sugar-cubes, the glue, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to pick out some beans so they can glue those, too. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be little stands wrapped in tinfoil.â&#x20AC;? The completed projects will not be edible, advises Reidy.

Senator talks to Liberals about Women in Politics By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West - Newly independent Senator Mobina Jaffer, a strong advocate for equal rights for women and minorities and chair of the Senate Standing Committee on Human Rights, was the guest speaker at the third annual Heritage Dinner for the Bay of Quinte Federal Liberal Association held at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Trenton on February 26. An accomplished lawyer who speaks six languages, she was also Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special envoy for peace in Sudan from 2002 to 2006, and is Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst Muslim senator, ďŹ rst African-born senator, and the ďŹ rst senator of South Asian descent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Am I a Liberal?â&#x20AC;? she asked, referring to party leader Justin Trudeauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s designating all Liberal Senators as Independents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am still a Liberal,â&#x20AC;? she said at the group of Liberal supporters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Justin did was a good thing. It was very brave.â&#x20AC;? She admitted she is not young and it took a while to adjust in her mind, but she said they will come out stronger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He did a service,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I adore Justin.â&#x20AC;? She noted her family were refugees in Uganda before they were allowed to come to Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His father saved my life,â&#x20AC;? she said. Jaffer said she often goes back to Uganda to visit, but will never again take for granted the freedom she has here. She has been in Canada for 37

years. She urges young people to get involved in politics and not to take their rights for granted. Jaffer said having more women in politics can make a difference not just on womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s issues but on whole communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have a different perspective,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need both men and women to strengthen our country.â&#x20AC;?

Notice of Annual General Meeting

She said she does not like the Olympics. She has seen how women are abused around the world and wants to change that. In Germany, where prostitution is legal, during the Olympics she saw warehouses set up for 100,000 men to be serviced by women. Through the work of KAIROS, a charitable organization whose funding was cut by the Conservative government, they were able to reduce this to 40,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to stop sex trafďŹ cking,â&#x20AC;? she stated. She noted that Canada stopped women coming from overseas as prostitutes but has seen young aboriginal girls doing that job on the streets to entertain men for the Olympics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have seen ten-, eleven- and twelve-year-olds walking the streets,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It broke my heart.â&#x20AC;? In Calcutta she has seen what Canadians can do to stop sex trafďŹ c through the International Justice Missions of Canada. It protects the girl, puts money into the justice system, takes care of the girls for up to six or seven years and helps transform society. Investigators go in and get the girls out. Prosecutors send the criminals to jail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imagine if we did this as a government, what a difference it would make,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The world would begin to get itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;we cannot treat women as commodities.â&#x20AC;? In Calcutta, Jaffer was shocked to see girls and women of all ages on the streets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One young Nepali girl stared at me,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a look of absolute betrayal.â&#x20AC;? Jaffer said we could stop this if we put our resources in to put trafďŹ ckers in jail which would send a message that every girl is important. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have lots to do,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to hear the pleas of women in Canada and around the world. Each one of us can make a difference, ordinary Canadians who care.â&#x20AC;? The Bay of Quinte Federal Liberal Riding Association is introducing a Bridge Forum with four speakers this year on Women In Politics, held twice in spring and twice in the fall. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spring speakers are Marlene Brant Castellano and Susan Dellacourt with events held at Capers in Belleville as a fund raiser.

Get fit for spring in new YMCA programs By Kate Everson

News - Quinte West - Get ďŹ t, get going to the YMCA. March Break programs are ready at the YMCA of Quinte West for ages ďŹ ve to 12 for March 10 to 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. with before and after care available from 7:30 a.m. up to 6 p.m. Register at the front desk or call 613-394-9622. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids swim every day and they play,â&#x20AC;? says Laurie Fitzsimmons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The leaders choose different themes each day.â&#x20AC;? There is also Open Swim and Open Gym during March Break for all families to enjoy the facilities. For spring, the YMCA has a whole ďŹ tness program set up starting on April 7 with registration beginning on March 3 for members and March 24 for non-members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of new stuff,â&#x20AC;&#x153; Laurie says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lots of kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; programs.â&#x20AC;? New in child and youth programs for spring are Fit Kids, group ďŹ tness for ages 10 to 13, Teen Yoga for ages seven to 13 and Youth Nights DropIn for ages eight to 14. There is also the Saturday Morning Club for ages seven to nine with a wide variety of

team building, active games and challenges. The Youth Connect Program is another new program that helps teens connect and make friends at the Y. Friday is also Family Zumba classes; dance at your own pace to the music. New is Aqua Boot Camp, taught in deep water with high intensity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Resistance in the water is harder,â&#x20AC;? notes instructor Martha Palm-Leis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get a wide range of ages for that class. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really popular.â&#x20AC;? Martha also instructs Family Aqua Fitness for the whole family, taught in shallow and deep water to music, combining cardiovascular and muscle strength as well as stretching. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Water is easier on the joints,â&#x20AC;? she adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have injuries or had surgery, this is low impact and helps tone and stretch your muscles in the warm pool. We also have Aqua Yoga which is very relaxing.â&#x20AC;? Youth Aquatics includes Aqua Sports designed for children to learn new skills for sports like water polo, underwater hockey, speed swimming and lifeguard sport. Participants must be seven to 12 and able to swim 100 metres and tread water for one minute. A Babysitting Course on March 7

is available for ages 11 up designed to help youth be conďŹ dent caring for children and what to do in emergency situations. Birthday Parties can also be booked at the YMCA, with or without a prepared lunch. Parties include party room, gym and pool activities. Martha is also very excited about the Youth Leader Corps program. It provides youth the opportunity to get involved in the YMCA and their community through various projects, learn leadership skills and service. The program is held Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. open to ages 11 to 15. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are the inbetween ages,â&#x20AC;? Martha says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They learn to become more independent and take on leadership roles in the community. They learn the values of the Y.â&#x20AC;? Martha said she started out at the Y at the age of 16 and is now a leader in training co-ordinator. She says what young people learn through these programs is invaluable. In the pool or on land they shadow the instructors and get trained in First Aid and endurance. They help in gymnastics, drama, sports, cooking, Kitchen for Kids, and even junior engineering (building

bridges and boats). â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started here ďŹ ve years ago, when the Y opened up,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice job. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a

She received congratulations from all levels of government, including Marmora and Lake, with Councillor, Linda Bracken arriving at the afternoon party to present the nonagenarian with a framed certificate in honour of the occasion. Born Theresa Burridge in Peterborough, Mrs. Bell was married to her late husband, Cecil, for 65 years.

the wrongdoings perpetuated on an unsuspecting electorate. But Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Conservatives do not wish to ďŹ x the real problems with the Act. They would rather ďŹ x the problem with the Chief Electoral OfďŹ cer investigating their misdeeds. This is a common thread with the Harper Government: if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like someone looking too closely or disagreeing with their view, then attack, bully, manipulate, obfuscate, circumvent and ultimately change the laws to better suit their purposes. We cannot allow this to continue! Not only are our democratic institutions being undermined, the future of our country is being unnecessarily jeopardised just to appease their desire to rule. We need to once again strengthen our democratic institutions. More importantly, we need to start to ďŹ nd common ground. We have to get past the polarization, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;us against themâ&#x20AC;? mentality. We must include not just more voters, but more voices in the laying out a vision for our country â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a vision where we ďŹ nd common ground and work together for a better Canada, a Canada that will once again lead the world in doing what is right because it is the right thing to do! We can no longer run our country in a manner that suits the interests of a party. That path leads to ruin for all Canadians. Canadians deserve better and should demand better.

Dear Editor, My Grandfather served in the First World War. Three of my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brothers served in the Second World War. My father was injured as a child and was not able to serve. All these men were loyal Conservatives. They belonged to the Anglican Church and were loyal, patriotic Canadians. They were tried and true Progressive Conservatives, not the Reform Party hacks that run this country today. My ancestors did not serve this country to have it sold out to Israel by some deceitful, betraying elected representative that everyone calls a Prime Minister. This time Stephen Harper crossed the line, forcing everyone who votes Conservative to be either a Zionist or a liar. Some choice!

TSSA #000076638111



Dear Editor Daryl Krampâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments in the press last week in support of the (Un) Fair Elections Act were typical Conservative propaganda. Equally disappointing was that he voted (along with the entire Conservative caucus) against the Oppositionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call for cross-Canada Committee Meetings to discuss the Fair Elections Act. Think about that! Rather than being able to tell Parliamentarians in their own communities the concerns they might have about this Act, Canadians were told they could drive to Ottawa or Skype in if they wanted to provide feedback to one of the most important rights of citizenship: the right to vote in fair elections. There is much that is not fair about the Fair Elections Act. It is a blatant attempt by the Harper Government to once again undermine our democracy. Changes to the act that minimize the vote in a sector of the population least likely to vote Conservative is deplorable. Once again, Harper is showing his true colours: Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Government is only interested in their base, plus the 10% of the populace that they have micro-targeted to most likely vote Conservative. Forget the rest of the electorate; forget about the rest of Canadians. They would prefer the rest of us just to stay home. What is even more disconcerting is the Harper Government goal of minimizing another thorn in their side, by minimizing the ability of the Chief Electoral OfďŹ cer to perform the duties of his original mandate. If they truly wanted a fairer electoral process they would give the Chief Electoral ofďŹ cer more power and more importantly more resources to perform his task. The problems in the Act are not with the mandate of the Chief Electoral ofďŹ cer, but with the lack of resources for him to properly investigate

A premature history of the second Cold War Editorial – The first mistake of the Ukrainian revolutionaries was to abandon the agreement of February 23 to create a national unity government, including some of the revolutionary leaders, that would administer the country until new elections in December. It would have left President Viktor Yanukovych in office until then, but with severely diminished powers, as the constitution would have been changed to restore the Gwynne Dyer authority of parliament. Leaving a man who ordered the murder of dozens of protesters in power even temporarily was a bitter pill to swallow, but it had tacit Russian support because it saved President Vladimir Putin’s face. However, the crowds on Independence Square refused to accept the deal, and Yanukovych was forced to flee. Parliament subsequently ratified his removal, but it was the mob, and especially the right-wing fighting groups like Praviy Sektor, who led, and the leadership who followed. Putin was humiliated, and he was given the pretext for claiming that Ukraine had fallen to a “fascist coup” as a justification, however flimsy, for rejecting the legitimacy of the new Ukrainian government. The second grave error – and this one was entirely unforced – was the new government’s decision to repeal the law giving Russian equal status as an official language in provinces with large Russian-speaking populations. It delighted Ukrainianspeaking ultra-nationalists in the west of the country, but it needlessly alienated the two-fifths of Ukraine’s population who speak Russian as their first language. So now Putin is bringing pressure on the new Ukrainian government by backing a secessionist movement in Crimea (where three-fifths of the people speak Russian). The rubberstamp Russian parliament has also granted him authority to use Russian troops elsewhere in Ukraine to “protect” Russians – by which it seems to mean Ukrainians in eastern Ukraine who speak Russian, although they are not actually under attack. Putin has not yet sent Russian troops into the eastern parts of Ukraine. However, pro-Russian crowds have appeared in cities like Kharkov, Donetsk and Lugansk demanding Russian “protection” amid plausible reports that many people in those crowds are actually Russians imported from just across

the border for the occasion, and not Russian-speaking Ukrainians at all. The promised Ukrainian election on May 25 may never happen. The Ukrainian army has been mobilised, and actual fighting could be only days away if the Russians invade eastern Ukraine, or attack the encircled Ukrainian garrisons in Crimea. Maybe Putin is just bluffing; more likely, he doesn’t yet know himself how far he is willing to go. But one thing generally leads to another, and some bluffs are hard to walk away from. Are we on the brink of a new Cold War? It wouldn’t be a hot war, except in Ukraine. Nobody will send troops to defend Ukraine, nor should they. Nobody is in position to stop Russia from conquering Ukraine if it chooses to, and turning it into a wider European war (or a world war) would not help matters. In any case, Moscow would probably not try to conquer all of Ukraine. Kyiv and the west would fight very hard, and after they were defeated they would continue to resist a Russian occupation with guerilla tactics, including terrorism. Putin doesn’t need that, so part of Ukraine would remain free, and call for outside help. It would come, in the form of financial and military aid, and maybe even what has hitherto been rigorously excluded from the discussion: NATO membership. And there Russia and everybody in NATO would sit for the next five or ten or twenty years in a frozen confrontation that would include a trade embargo, an arms race, and a remote but real possibility of a nuclear war. This is not at all what Putin intends or expects, of course. He is calculating that once he controls the Russian-speaking parts of Ukraine, he will be able to enforce a restructuring of the country as a federation in which the government of the eastern, Russian-speaking part will be permanently under Russia’s thumb, and will have a veto on the decisions of the central government. But Putin’s calculations about Ukraine have been wrong every single time since the turn of the century. He backed Yanukovych before 2004, and the Orange Revolution proved him wrong. He backed Yanukovych even more enthusiastically after 2010; the policy blew up in his face again. And here he is yet again, backing Yanukovych as the president-inexile of his Russia-friendly fantasy version of Ukraine. His calculations are wrong. If he continues down this road, he will cause a quite needless political disaster.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Informed voters have the power to make change Dear Editor I feel compelled to write this letter because of the things I have read or heard in the news. We all know that Wynne will have to call an election sooner or later. Hopefully sooner before we are even further down the toilet than we are now. Hence the time is now to start following what this collection of clowns we call politicians are saying. Irregardless of the “fact” that we all know we can’t trust a politician’s promises, especially at election time, you can still glean some insights into the way they think. (scary as that may be.) Also look at their past performance and voting record on different bills and such. How many times has a politician said one thing and then voted the opposite. We all know these self-serving liars will promise what you want to hear until they get elected and then it’s so sorry, no can do. If you vote without knowing the issues you are just as bad and useless as the ones who don’t vote. If you vote for a person or party just because your parents did you are part of the problem and not too smart either. If you think jokers care

about you give your head a shake, they don’t unless it’s good for their career. People, if you are literate at all you “know” that politicians always look after themselves first. Sure, once in a while they throw us a bone, but only after all their buddies and loud mouth special interest nuts have picked it pretty clean. Politicians know that special interest groups get some voters out so they will entertain their ideas no matter how zany or unrealistic their demands. We do have the power to change things. Informed voting is one of those powers. Remember we hire politicians by voting and we pay them through taxes. So contrary to popular belief and the way politicians think, they are our employees. It is time to start making these egotistical and self-serving bunch of clowns toe the line and start doing what the majority of us know is right. After all that’s what democracy is all about.

By Stephen Petrick Editorial – I’m not an expert on weather, but I subscribe to the theory that every few years Mother Nature gives you an abominable winter. This seems to be one of those. The image of tall snow banks and the chill of -20C March weather is taking me back to 2008, the last time we got a mega wallop of snow that lasted into spring. The snow that year eventually turned to water and the Moira River in Belleville overflowed, leading to stories of sorrow, laughter and even some heroics. I’ll never forget it because it was part of my first full year living in our region of river-based communities and one of my more interesting experiences as a young journalist. I had moved from my native town of Kingston to Belleville just months earlier to work for a daily newspaper. The loneliness of such a move wasn’t helped by the bone-chilling cold and relentless amount of snow. The biggest blizzard, I recall, was the last one. It lasted two full days of March Break and once snow ploughs got on the roads, the snow banks seemed about ten feet high. I remember it took me hours to shovel off just a single parking space at my apartment. The sight of large snow banks in broad daylight at 7 p.m. was a memorable experience, too, since daylight savings time had just moved to mid-March. It was hard for me to believe that opening day of the Major League Baseball season – my own personal benchmark for the official start of spring – was only two weeks away. But the snow eventually melted and it did so fast. By late March the Moira River along Belleville flowed like a white-water rafting course and roared with the wind. The flood plains in around Foxboro, just north of the city, began to fill up. Water started creeping eerily towards people’s houses. I walked into the newsroom one Monday morning in April and was assigned immediately to head to the Ashley Street and Harmony Road area in Foxboro, where the floods, I was told, were causing serious damage. I rushed out expecting to see heartbreak and devastation. I ended up seeing people, well, smiling, and having a good time. I’m not trying to trivialize the situation. Some people may have lost property or saw their basements ruined during the event, which couldn’t have been fun. But these floods may have, in the end, caused more good than harm. I saw neighbours helping neighbours by lining sandbags along the homes, with the help of firefighters and friends. I looked hard for the story that would really hit home; the story on the homeowners who lost everything. In the end, the most emotional people I could find were the mother and son who were just tickled pink that a TV guy from Toronto interviewed them for Global News. I learned that of all the natural disasters one can be exposed to, a flood – at least a flood of this proportion – is probably one of the more gentle kinds. Sure, it was a little scary but it was better than a hurricane, a major earthquake or a volcano spilling lava. In time the water receded and the stories about the logistics of sandbag deliveries turned to stories focussing on the heroes; the firefighters who rushed to the scenes to help out and the tireless volunteers. Life returned to normal in the area north of Belleville and I suspect it has pretty much stayed that way since. But with another late spring upon us, and a healthy supply of midMarch snow, who would bet against another sudden thaw and floods along the Moira, the Trent River or any other local waterway? Get your sandbags ready. It could be the time of your life. Stephen Petrick is a freelance journalist and communications specialist based in Belleville.

Caressant Care Retirement Home

Marmora Loneliness, Depression and Socialization among our Seniors The elderly population is growing quickly due to advancement in medication management and available treatments. These people are often faced with many physical, psychological and social changes in their lives and their sense of self-worth deteriorates thereby affecting their once happy life. Many suffer from depression and loneliness as a result of living alone or maybe the loss of their spouse to long term care or even death. When this happens the risk is a reduction in social activities and an eventual disengagement from the community. It is well known that a lack of socialization leads to loneliness and depression. Once the senior is no longer socializing on a regular basis, their health begins to deteriorate creating a world of health problems for the family to have to deal with. Added to the fact that the family members may still be working full time and raising their own children or assisting in the grandparent role. It is a lot of stress when this occurs. Having a plan and talking to your family member before a crisis is a great plan. Take the time and explore options before it’s upon you. Many families visit Caressant Care Marmora Retirement Home feeling desperate to place one of their parents due to a crisis. Retirement living can provide wonderful socialization for the senior in your life. They have their own apartment, visit the dining room for meals and have the ability to come and go. There is a physician and nurse practitioner available with nursing staff to assist in delivery of medications. In addition, there are social events planned on a regular basis to keep the senior engaged in the community of the home. As we all know having friends and social opportunities is good for the soul. If you think this may be an option for your loved one, please contact Jackie Fraser at Caressant Care Retirement Home in Marmora613-472-3130 R0012584676

News - Madoc - Eric Sandford has been a life-long resident of the Madoc region and hopes to serve Centre Hastings as municipal councillor for the next term of office. His first attempt at the office in 2010 saw him in a close race with Councillor Larry Mitz who took the seat with 924 votes over Sandford’s 908 total. Sandford was raised in the Keller’s Bridge area north of the village of Madoc, and, with the exception of six years away, has lived and worked in the area. After high school he worked with Pigden Motors until 1968, then with Ontario Hydro for 14 years in clerical work, as a supervisor, and as liaison between property owners and construction companies. In 1983 he and his wife, Judy, returned to Madoc and he went back to Pigden Motor Sales. In 1988 they became principal partners in the business with Jim and Joanne Pigden until it closed in 1999. Since then he has been a sales and leasing consultant with McKeown Motor Sales of Spring Brook. Sandford says he is taking retirement as of 2015 and will be able to dedicate his time to municipal duties. Though he has not held office before, Sandford says he is active on municipal committees, currently holding positions with the Committee of Adjustment, the Property Standards Committee and Community Improvement. He was also named as a “fence viewer,” a position he says he has not yet been called upon to act. Sandford says he believes he has “a well-rounded knowledge in dealing with people, large companies, provincial and federal regulations, and would be able to handle problems in a manner beneficial to our municipality.” Sandford is an active member of the Masonic Lodge, Past District Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario, and is the chairperson of the Eldorado-Fox Cemetery, and past chairperson and active member of the Council of Trinity United Church of Madoc. Sanford says he is an advocate of “openness and transparency.” He notes he will come forward with his platform further into the year.

Topics were varied in the Legion public speaking competition By Judy Backus

News – Marmora – Marie Gordon, President of the Marmora Legion, welcomed contestants and supporters alike to the annual public speaking competition held on March 2. While only four speakers registered, one in the primary division (Grades 1 to 3) and three in the junior section (Grades 4 through 6), the afternoon was a success for all.

Participants, who chose their own topics for the presentation, were judged on delivery, material, language and literary form, with each of them speaking with confidence in front of the audience and a panel of judges comprised of Eleanor Madill, Gary Imbeau, and Dianne Ray. All participants received certificates, with the first-place winners taking home $30. The second-place winner received $25, and the

third-place prize was $20. First-place winners will move on to compete at the Zone level competition, which is being held in Marmora on March 30. Topics presented on Sunday included the worldwide issue of bullying, the importance of music in one’s life, chimpanzees of Africa, and Marie Gordon, President of the Marmora Legion, is shown with the winRobert Service’s poem, The Cremation of Sam ners of the annual public speaking contest who proudly display their certificates.

Fire response praised by Stirling business owner

News – Stirling – A local food producer is getting back to business after a late night fire halted production at the facility at the west end of the village nearly three weeks ago. BioEssential Botanicals owner Dennis Barker had nothing but praise for local emergency workers, his own staff, residents, neighbours and officials who, he says, have been universally supportive, helpful and professional through what has been an unsettling time for the flourishing seed germinating company. As a result, he says, what might have been a disaster turned out to be little more than a hiccup. “Everyone here (in Sitrling) has been amazing,” he says. “It’s a really good time for us,” Barker notes of the producer of Omega Meals and other healthy options, adding consumers around the world are becoming increasingly concerned with food quality. “They want good food,” he says. And in several different forms, from main courses to desserts and snacks, BioEssential Botanicals produces exactly that, he adds. Relieved and pleased that things are up and running so quickly, and a full complement of 16 workers have returned to their jobs, Barker said Monday before leaving on a business trip to California, that the ordeal could have been significantly worse. Away visiting family in Australia at the time of the fire, owners Dennis and Gail Barker were contacted while crews were still on the scene, he says, and with the situation in capable hands they opted not to change their plans, returning home on schedule. The decision was also made, he adds, to continue to pay employees throughout the shutdown. Business has been booming for the organic food company, Barker says, resulting in a pair of expansions in recent years and plans for continued future growth. “The support we’ve had in Stirling has been incredible,” he says, adding their choice to operate in a small community instead of a larger centre has proved invaluable. Fire Chief Rick Caddick, who was also out of town at the time of the fire, says officials from the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management (OFMEM) completed an on-site investigation immediately after the

fire but further studies are being conducted. “Crews quickly contained the fire damage to the east wing of the building,” Caddick says, but, “due to the large amount of inventory and commercial equipment on site, the OFMEM was contacted to investigate.” Caddick says the fire is not suspicious in nature but remains under investigation.

Tweed council joins reaction against rising policing costs


By Brett Mann

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tweed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Many Ontario municipalities feel they are reaching the breaking point in dealing with rising OPP policing costs. At the February Tweed council meeting Mayor JoAnne Albert read from the most recent communication from the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) on this issue, â&#x20AC;&#x153;hot off the pressâ&#x20AC;? in her words. After discussing the matter at some length, council voted to support a resolution to Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne from the township of Greater Madawaska calling the current OPP billing model â&#x20AC;&#x153;fundamentally flawed, unfair and inequitable.â&#x20AC;? Two issues are of concern to Ontario municipalities; the OPP billing model itself and the larger question of unsustainable and growing policing costs. Albert said that AMO wants to bring municipalities together â&#x20AC;&#x153;with one voiceâ&#x20AC;? to address these problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The expectation is to present its results to the provincial government by the end of March or early April,â&#x20AC;? Albert quoted from the report. AMO has formed a new OPP billing committee that will â&#x20AC;&#x153;guide efforts to achieve a billing model that municipalities can live with,â&#x20AC;? in the words of the

communication. It cites wide disparities of costs between municipalities ranging from as little as $9 per household in some places to $1,000 per household in other municipalities. AMO will address the billing model in the short term, noted Albert but there was broad agreement that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the root issue of spiralling costs needs to be addressed in order to provide sustainable policing in the long term.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy with that,â&#x20AC;? she added, pointing out that many of the mayors on the AMO committee are from smaller rural municipalities. Deputy Mayor Brian Treanor observed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the issue is not so much the billing, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the basic cost escalation. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford it.â&#x20AC;? The Eastern Ontario Wardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Caucus is dealing with the issue â&#x20AC;&#x153;everywhere they go,â&#x20AC;? said Albert. There have been â&#x20AC;&#x153;winners and losersâ&#x20AC;? among Ontario municipalities with the current billing model and to adequately deal with the problem it might be necessary â&#x20AC;&#x153;to open up the Police Services Act,â&#x20AC;? a step not being considered at the moment, she added. AMO had been sitting on the fence on the issue of OPP billing and costs until now, said Albert,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I can see from this letter that they are at least taking it seriously.â&#x20AC;? Council reviewed resolutions from other municipalities seeking support and decided to endorse that of the township of Greater Madawaska. Treanor noted that the majority of municipalities are in favour of changing the current system. Policing costs in Tweed are based on a flat rate of $260 plus â&#x20AC;&#x153;calls for serviceâ&#x20AC;? charges. The question of what constitutes normal policing costs as opposed to calls for service costs was raised by Treanor and councillor Justin Bray, who suggested these extra costs may reflect costs to the OPP for court appearances and remands associated with charges they lay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It should be that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no call for service costs if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no charges laid,â&#x20AC;? suggested councillor Bray. Councillor Jim Flieler remarked that â&#x20AC;&#x153;at one point we had some 300 (break and enters). Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 300 calls for service, but they finally cracked it and they charged the guy. They had actually been watching these guys, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how they caught them.â&#x20AC;? Councillor Bray questioned whether funds obtained through Continued on page 11

Legion sponsors public speaking contest By Brett Mann

News - Tweed - The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 428 held the initial round of its annual public speaking contest last week with a host of eager contestants and an appreciative audience of parents, grandparents, teachers and interested members of the public. Hal Trites organized the event in his role as Youth Education chairman at the Legion. “It’s one of our main programs,” Trites reported. “The first-place winners go on to the zone level competition which is being held in Marmora this year on March 30.” Winners of that contest proceed to the divisional level, and perhaps to the all-Ontario finals. Last Sunday’s contest featured a total of 17 contestants from both Tweed

Elementary school and St. Carthagh’s Catholic school in three categories: Grades 1 to 3; Grades 4 to 6 and Grades 7 to 9. No high school students participated this year but Mr. Trites is confident they will next year. Time allowances are from three to five minutes and students are free to choose any topic they wish. First-prize winners receive $25, second prize $15 and third place receives $10. In addition, all participants receive $5 and the overall winner of the highest score across scoring categories is awarded the Art Bachellier Memorial Award. Pat Thomas, former Branch 428 president, explained that Art Bachellier was a World War ll veteran who passed away in 1985. Art’s wife Maisie

purchased the trophy to present to the student with the highest marks in public speaking in her husband’s memory. Winning students have their engraved names added to the trophy, and a sixinch replica is being ordered to present directly to the winning student. This year’s winner was Morgan Beatty from St. Carthagh’s who spoke on the topic of “Being Short” at the Grade 7 to 9 level. First place in the Grade 1 to 3 section went to Rory King from Tweed Elementary for his talk on “Things that drive people crazy.” Reid Whalen of St. Carthagh’s won second prize and Kendal Drain of Tweed Elementary took the third award. In the Grades 4 to 6 category, Isaac Beatty from St. Carthagh’s won first place for his topic,

Tweed – Justice was the theme of February’s Terrific Kids awards at St. Carthagh’s Catholic School. Teachers selected one student from each grade, junior kindergarten

through Grade 6, who they saw as best exemplifying the virtue of justice in the past month. Some of the comments made about individual award winners reflect the qualities

the teachers were looking for. “Helpful, shares smiles, respects peers, plays fair, never utters an unkind word, mindful, funny,” were some of the descriptions offered for this group of award recipients. The Terrific Kids awards were presented by local Kiwanis members Bob Sills, Bob Giguere and Mike Cassidy, himself a retired teacher. Winning students receive a certificate and medallion and a bumper sticker for the family car. The Terrific Kids recognition program has been a long-standing Kiwanis project, and teachers have commented that it provides a way to focus on a particular aspect of their students behaviour for a significant period of time so that they can usually be quite confident in their choices of the most

deserving students. Prudence is the virtue being observed in March, Principal Michele McGrath told the assembled students, citing three steps to being prudent. “The first step is to try to find the most loving thing that you can do. The second step is to judge ‘what are my choices here?’ And the third step is to act prudently – to make the right choice,” said McGrath. “It’s a hard one but I know we can do it. We’ll be looking for people who make really good choices in the next month.” February’s Terrific Kid awards went to Graydon

Council decided to wait until they had more information on actual local policing costs before submitting their own resolution on the issue to the provincial government.

Prance. Ms. Brinson, a former teacher at S.H. Connor School in Tweed, remarked afterwards that the ability to make public presentations has become a more important part of many people’s jobs and “preparing for adult life means getting the skills of speaking in public and making presentations.” Pat Thomas and Gary Young served as score keepers and Legion volunteers Gwen and Nancy served up snacks for the crowd including milk for the kids donated by the local Valu-Mart store.

Scavenger hunt put students and parents to the test

Rankings released

By Steve Jessel

News – Belleville – Secondary schools in the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board showed little change in the annual Fraser Institute secondary school rankings report, with Bayside Secondary School once again coming in as the top secondary school in the board. For the 2012-2013 school year, Bayside ranked 72 out of 740 Ontario secondary schools with an 8.0 rating, raising their five-year average rating to 7.4 and their five-year ranking to 123 in the province. Typically, five-year averages are weighted more heavily than single-year results, as a single school year isn’t felt to be indicative of a school’s overall performance. The provincial average rating tends to hover around 6.0 in any given year. Following Bayside, the next top secondary school in the board as identified by the rankings is Centennial, which is rated at 6.8 for both 2012-2013 and also over the last Please see “School” on page 13

Centennial is followed by Moira (5.9 rating, 6.5 average), Centre Hastings (5.7 rating, 5.3 average), Prince Edward Collegiate Institute (5.5 rating, 5.9 average), Quinte Secondary School (5.3 rating, 5.3 average), Trenton High School (4.2 rating, 4.6 average) and North Hastings High School (3.2 rating, 4.5 average). However, typically school boards tend to place little value on the Fraser Institute report cards, with Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board superintendent of education Cathy Portt saying the ratings provide “an incomplete and distorted picture of school effectiveness.” Each year, the Fraser Institute Report Card on Ontario’s Secondary Schools rates public, Catholic, and francophone elementary schools across Ontario based on nine academic indicators using data from the annual province-wide tests of reading, writing, and math administered by the Ontario government’s Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO). The report card also includes information about each school’s make-up, including parents’ average income, the percentage of ESL students, and the percentage of special needs students. The full results are available at www.

Hastings County alone should be spending $80 million a year on roads, said CAO Jim Pine, but it is only spending $12 million and even that is difficult. There was also some debate about the wisdom of county council’s decision some years ago to disband its own roads department while most other counties Young violinists, Ariana Foster and Madeleine McGregor, provided the post dinner entertainment kept theirs.

ther news on infrastructure help from the federal government. Members also agreed that their best bet was to act through the Eastern Ontario Warden’s Caucus, on which Hastings County has long played a key role, and through the Association of Municipalities of Ontario to present a strong front for a common problem. Council also saw a presentation put together by the Warden’s Caucus outlining how Eastern Ontario particularly bears the brunt of aging roads, lower incomes and lower tax base. That plan calls for a fixed, long-range and adequate amount of infrastructure financing.

News – Urban-based politicians and senior administrators have no conception of the reality of maintaining adequate roads in rural areas. That’s the consensus of Hastings County Council members as they debated the problem at length last Thursday. In vain, so far, Hastings County and Eastern Ontario politicians have tried to point out to provincial and federal governments that the cost of building or maintaining a kilometre of road in an urban area is shared by an average of 25 property owners, while in rural Ontario the average is only five. Yet the costs are the same and the tax base, often lacking significant commercial or industrial assessment, is much lower. Several members of council affirmed their municipalities are being driven to bankruptcy. One member, Limerick Reeve Dave Golem, compared the situation to a person diagnosed with an incurable case of cancer. “I agree the situation is critical, but it is not fatal,” said Warden Rick Phillips. He and others said they are hoping for some serious help and relief in the coming Ontario budget which was indicated at the recent Ontario Good Roads convention. They are also awaiting fur-

A melancholy goodbye to all readers

Reality Check: By Sheila Wray Gregoire

Lifestyles - The only constant in life is change. Some seasons of life, though, rush changes through even more than others, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the midst of one of those seasons. One daughter has left home; one is learning to drive. I have two book contracts due this year. And perimenopause is causing my hemoglobin levels to plummet faster than Rob Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation. Call me unimpressed. When I started writing this column my children were five and seven. We were just beginning our homeschooling journey. Today instead of my days being consumed with teaching math and reading great books out loud, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m writing blog posts and plan-


Norwood Minister: Rev. Roger Millar 9:30am: Worship & Sunday School All are Welcome

ning speaking tours and trying to find time to write more books. And so it is that after eleven and a half years, and six hundred columns, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided to concentrate on other things. My blog is taking so much of my attention that I find deadlines a little more intimidating than I did when the biggest thing on my plate was finishing a Science lesson with my daughters. I type this with a heavy heart, because I have so enjoyed having this outlet for my thoughts. Whenever I felt ticked about something, I would always think, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can write a column about that!â&#x20AC;? And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d start planning it--while driving, while in the shower, while making dinner. It was wonderful to know that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be

able to put my thoughts down on paper. Being a local columnist was such a treat, too. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to the grocery store, or take my kids to swimming, or walk into church without someone mentioning last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column. People read what I wrote, and for that I am very humbled and very grateful. I still have issues which I wish I could have explored more, or at least lended a little more eloquence. I am dreadfully worried about the institution of marriage, because I do think that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the bedrock of healthy children, healthy families, and a healthy society. I am constantly frustrated by our entitlement culture, and by the way

the government bends over backwards for those who have messed up, while leaving those who have done nothing wrong flailing. And I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of a better example of governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failing than with the foster care system. We give biological parents chance after chance, letting them collect welfare money, methadone treatments, and many other government programs, while their kids languish in care. Too few are adopted out, because parents are given â&#x20AC;&#x153;second chancesâ&#x20AC;?. And by the time the kids are taken away for good, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so scarred that adopting them is difficult. Why do parents get second chances while kids donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even get first chances? We will never have a healthy

society until people bear the consequences of their actions. We are fostering too much irresponsibility, and not enough maturity and independence. And it scares me. And so there is still much to say, and much work to do. I will just be doing it a different way. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the middle of writing a book for Simon & Schuster called 11 Thoughts That Will Change Your Marriage. My blog, To Love, Honor and Vacuum (tolovehonorandvacuum. com), had 600,000 visits last month, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing all the time. I share my parenting and marriage thoughts there, and I do hope you will join me.

Most of all, though, I hope that over the last eleven and a half years I have written something that has made you love your family more, smile at strangers more, or consider faith again. If I have done that, then I will be happy indeed. Please stay in touch with Sheila! You can read her blog, or subscribe to it by email, at http://tolovehonorandvacuum. com.

gists (I looked it up; Gentle Reader, that is the proper name for this discipline) have been at it for a very long time, even before Clarence Birdseye brought winter inside. Some of the discussions between various schools of thought are quite heated, which should help us here and seem to be split between global warming as either man-caused or natural climate swings. I digress, perhaps a function of snow-bound cabin fever? I did come across a guideline for determining how long it will take for a snowpack to melt. The figures read somewhere between .070-.150 inches per day per degree Fahrenheit.   (3.8mm per day at 1de-

gC)  Since my snow piles are some eleventy-eleven feet high I reckon it will take about 641 days, give or take a few hours, before I need to sharpen the blades on my lawnmower.  Admittedly thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the doom and gloom version of what would happen if March temps never went above one degree celsius. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the good news: nice warm days of fourty-one degrees farenheit will have snow melting away at 6â&#x20AC;? per day. For you Trenton folks, I do have a stop-gap solution. Our friend, Scott Saylor, has several signs in front of his home.  They say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wanted and Free Snow.â&#x20AC;? Please, GR, when you bring your gifts to his home donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave them in the driveway and

block his vehicle, the front lawn will be fine. Oddly enough, for us home gardeners; this extra snow wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make that much of a difference other than to heighten our appreciation when we do see the first patches of bare soil emerging into the sunlight. For those who start their seeds indoors, especially the cool loving plants such as lettuce, kale, beets and so on, you should be set up and ready to go. These plants can be sown indoors between four to six weeks before last frost. Some of them, e.g. lettuce and snow peas, can be sown directly outdoors as soon as a bit of workable soil is available even if it is only a few square feet. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to take a moment to apologize to all of the folks who have received an e-mail invitation to join a labourbased social media group. It certainly was not my intent for the bots in this program to glom onto every email address in my computer. For the incon-

venience this has caused you, I am sorry. For the gracious manner in which the refusals are written, thank you. Be of good cheer, GR, spring is coming. Keep yourself busy doing the stuff you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do in April.  Make sure all of your tools are up to snuff. Make sure you have a plan of action with all the resources squared away. Now is the time to prune out damaged limbs while the piles of snow raise you up a bit higher. Now is the perfect time to head off to the library or bookstore and get inspired. Learn something new and plan to give it a go this year. You can also buy snowshoes at a discount and get into shape before gardening starts up. You should have about a month of good shoeing. Flippancy aside, this is a perfect time for attending to your physical abilities. Stretching is more important than strength building but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t neglect that aspect of exercise either.

Public Works crews struggling with endless winter By Kate Everson

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Â Quinte West â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Will winter never end? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a winter like this in 30 years,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor John Williams at Quinte West council Monday night. Public Works manager Chris Angelo said the city has already spent $700,000 on salt and sand for the roads this year. Councillor Jim Harrison asked if Public Works is including increasing costs for next year. Angelo said that is included in the 2014 budget. He added that potholes are also expensive and time-consuming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We spend a fair bit of time filling potholes when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not plowing,â&#x20AC;? Angelo said. Councillor Paul Kyte asked if Public Works is predicting another norâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;easter coming this way. Angelo said there will be flurries and more snow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are monitoring the weather all the time,â&#x20AC;? he said. John Williams said the roads crews are doing a great job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to compare us with other municipalities, but just drive down number two highway,â&#x20AC;? he said. Harrison said he just got back from a roads conference and, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to be home.â&#x20AC;? Councillor Leslie Roseblade asked if these potholes are a big cost to repair. Angelo said they are included in their roads budget. He noted his staff may have to reprioritize their list after a spring review. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The number of potholes is fairly extensive this year,â&#x20AC;? he admitted.

Councillor Jim Alyea said he has had a lot of complaints about the potholes, but there are still effects from the ice storm. He said that in one place there are trees still hanging low over the road. Trucks are scraping the side of the tree branches as they drive by, and he is concerned that a nearby swamp will make it worse when it overflows in the spring. Staff also discussed Bill 69 and the cost of construction going up for municipalities. Finance director David Clazie said they will have a shorter time to pay

and it will put the power back to the contractors. Councillor Fred Kuypers commented it may create more lawsuits. He asked if private contractors are allowed to dump snow in the pit. Angelo said that has been in place for many years. Councillor Ron Hamilton commented on a new doctor at the Quinte West Medical Centre from the doctor recruitment program. Hamilton also said there are too many protests in the area that take away police from our community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our own community doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get

looked after,â&#x20AC;? he said. Williams noted that he had a letter back from Belleville council in response to Quinte Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for support in establishing the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joint Task Force-2 in Quinte West. Belleville has fully supported the program including the acquisition of all lands to relocate the base here. Inspector Mike Reynolds noted there will be an all-day conference in Batawa on March 27 called Building Safe Communities, with keynote speakers and lunch.

Williams said he is going to talk to the Minister of the Environment this week with Member of Parliament Rick Norlock and Peterborough cruise operator Mark Eckert about Trent Severn Waterway service levels. It was noted that a group has been formed called Canal District to support economic interests on the Murray Canal, Bay of Quinte and Presquâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ile. The first meeting was held last week in Brighton. See for more information.

Bulls crushed by Kingston Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Belleville â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It was a disappointing weekend of hockey for the Belleville Bulls, and with a pair of lopsided losses to the Kingston Frontenacs the Bullsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; playoff chances are hanging on by a thread. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone is getting an opportunity to play ... we really need to try to lay a foundation as to what our expectations are going to be moving forward for the group that returns,â&#x20AC;? said assistant coach Jason Supryka. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We certainly havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t counted ourselves out of it, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be very difficult.â&#x20AC;? With just a handful of games left in the season and the Bulls trailing Niagara and Ottawa by only a few points for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, a home-and-home set with Kingston beginning Friday night took on new importance, but Belleville came up way short against their old rivals. First, on Friday night the Bulls were embarrassed in a 10-2 loss to the Frontenacs, where they allowed five firstperiod goals on 18 Kingston shots. Belleville netminder

Micheal Giugovaz would be left in for all 10 goals. The lone bright spot for the Bulls was the play of Cameron Brace, who after opening the scoring on an early powerplay, would also score just 15 seconds into the second period, giving him two goals on the night. Belleville would finish with one goal on five powerplay opportunities. The Bulls didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have long to lick their wounds before they were back on the ice against the very same Kingston team, one night later at the Yardmen Arena in Belleville. Early-game struggles would again haunt the Bulls and after allowing three goals in the opening stanza Saturday night, Kingston took a 4-0 lead just a minute into the second period on a powerplay goal by Kingston centre Darcy Greenway. Credit the Bulls however for digging in their heels in front of a crowd of 3,000-plus inside the Yardmen, and second-year forward Micheal Cramarossa was the one to get the Bulls on the board, roofing a shot home from in close to record his seventh goal of the season.

The Bulls fans were still cheering Cramarossaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal when Kingston struck back just six seconds later. Kingston would win the faceoff and drive directly down the ice, where Kingstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sam Bennett restored the four-goal advantage with a quick shot past Belleville goalie Charlie Graham. Heading into the third period Belleville still trailed the Frontenacs 5-1, and although the Bullsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; David Tomasek would make it a bit closer by scoring his 11th of the year a few minutes in, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as close as Belleville would come in a 5-2 loss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew coming into tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, that if we were still in it after the first period then we would be able to sustain a bit of pressure,â&#x20AC;? Supryka said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously having the first period here where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re down by three is really tough.â&#x20AC;? The loss left the Bulls with just six games left in the regular season - they hosted the Oshawa Generals Wednesday night but the score was unavailable by press time. Belleville then travels to

Tourney helps launch track campaign By Richard Turtle

News – Stirling – A newly formed fundraising committee with its sights set on the Stirling Public School’s outdoor track received a boost last weekend from organizers of the Oak Lake Pond Hockey Tournament. Committee spokesperson Lianne Radocsay, along with members Darrin Heasman and Greg Woodbeck, spent part of last Saturday joined by spectators and players on the frozen shore of Oak Lake as eight participating teams faced off on a pair of rinks throughout the day. “I think it’s really great what they’re doing,” Radocsay said of the day-long, four-on-four fun tournament, noting the fundraising committee had only just formed when members were approached by tournament organizers John and Mark Kerr offering their support. “We’re actually just getting started,” she says, “so this is really good.” Hot lunches were provided for players during the tournament and crowds formed around the barbecue as well as rinkside midway through the day. And while the weather was a little cool for the spectators, many players agreed conditions out on the ice were close to ideal. The tournament began last year, John explains, when his brother Mark was participating in a volunteer program providing educational and athletic opportunities to children in Africa. And, he says, the success of the original event for both its fun and its fundraising led to a return to Oak Lake this year and plans to continue the cold weather showdown and support a local project or program in the process. For the second annual tournament, the brothers decided the school track was an ideal fit. “It was a great turnout and everyone said they had a lot of fun,” John notes, adding there was significant help from local sponsors as well. “We ended up raising $500 and a bit of change after expenses,” he says. And while he wishes the number could have been a little bit higher, “it’s just nice to raise anything and create a bit of an event to acknowledge

the track fundraising.” Sponsors included Stirling Foodland, Corners Grill and Tap, Twisted Mounty, DetDesigns, Bob’s Portable Toilets, and Dempster’s - Peter Hall. Weather permitting, the Kerrs hope to host a third annual Oak Lake Pond Hockey Tournament in 2015. But John admits he could do with a little less snow removal work next time around. The school track fundraising committee is hoping to attract growing support in the coming months and recently explained their intentions in a letter to Stirling-Rawdon Council, noting, “a committee has been formed to revitalize the existing track at Stirling Public School to make it a suitable venue for both school and community events.” Plans include curbing the inside and outside edges, widening lanes, complete levelling and resurfacing as well as making moderations to the layout to extend and reshape the course to meet track and field standards. And while Radocsay admits that it might be an odd time to discuss summer sports, the spring, she says, will soon be upon us.

Hockey teams battle for Bay of Quinte championships By Steve Jessel

Sports – Belleville – Bay of Quinte high school hockey supremacy was on the line at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre last week, where the region’s top school clubs convened for a one-day tournament to determine bragging rights for the 2014 season. It would be an all-Hastings final when all the chips were down, as the Centre Hastings Secondary School Centurions faced off against the North Hastings High School Huskies in the gold medal match after the two teams beat the Nicholson Catholic College Crusaders and the Centennial Secondary School Chargers in separate semi-final matchups. In the final, Centre Hastings would ride a balanced scoring attack that saw four different players score goals en route to a 4 - 2 championship win, led by a goal and an assist by Robbie Ellis. Centre Hastings took the lead on their very first shot of the game, and they had little reason to look back after that. The Centurion’s Dustin Maunes added to the lead before the frame was up, and Centre Hastings held a commanding 2 - 0 lead after the opening period. The second period looked to be more of the same after the Centurion’s Brandon Albert scored on a one-timer to make the lead 3 - 0, but North Hastings finally began to show the ability that

Perhaps drawing some inspiration from his captain, North Hasting’s Jordan Easton would make a drive to the net of his own just 45 seconds later, where he promptly netted home the goal on a slick backhand shot to bring the St. Theresa’s Ebony Walsh makes a move to get past a defender during the Huskies back within a goal.

Game three of the OMHA Semi-final is in Marmora on Friday, March 7th at 6 p.m. and game five in Madoc Saturday March 8th at noon. The McDonalds Atom A Grizzlies had their hands full with the Shallow Lake Lakers on Saturday March 1st and Sunday March 2nd. The highly touted team from Shallow Lake jumped out to an early 2 - 0 lead in game one of the semi-final series and even though Centre Hastings had several scoring chances throughout the game, they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t solve the Laker netminder Jesse Cunningham. Captain Kellen Dostaler scored with under a minute left in the third after taking a pass from Tyler Sawkins. However, the Griz couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seize the momentum

More strong showings from the Peewee Grizzlies

Sports - The McConnell Peewee Grizzlies hockey team opened up their semi-final series on the road in Flesherton with a pair of wins.  A strong Golden Eagles team put the pressure on in the first period but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t solve Grizzliesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goalie Hayden Hammock.  Centre Hastings opened up the scoring in the second period before Flesherton scored a pair to take a 2 - 1 lead. The Grizzlies tied it up at 2 - 2 as the game headed to the third period. Coach John Oke must have lit a fire under his team during the short break as the Grizzlies came out on fire and dominated the final period. With three goals in the third frame, the Grizzlies skated away with a 5 - 2 game one win. Scorers for the Grizzlies were Brayden Bailey, Curtis McCurdy, Sky Graham, Eric Ramsey and Abby Cassidy, with assists coming from Ramsey, Cassidy and Bailey (2).  Flesherton opened up game two with a quick goal. Despite constant pressure, goalie Owen McMaster kept his team in the game until the Grizzlies found their legs. The Grizzlies took a 3 - 1 lead midway through the second period from goals by Brayden Bailey, Abby Cassidy and Colby Laviolette with assists from Sky Graham, Karsten Leonard and Treyton Finch. From that point on both teams swapped a pair of goals which made the final a 5 - 3 Grizzlies win and a 2 - 0 series lead. Other goal scorers were Curtis McCurdy and Karsten Leonard assisted by Jack Oke and Finch. Game three will be in Mar-

mora on Friday, March 7th at 7:30 p.m. with game four if necessary in Madoc on Saturday at 3:15 p.m.  The Ontario Truss and Wall Peewee AE Grizzlies started league playoff against the Prince Edward County Kings on March 1,  with a dramatic overtime 3 - 2 win. Gabriel Lemire and Austin Smith scored in regulation and Reese Preston scored the overtime  winner with an assist from Wes Cuddy. Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second game was just as tight as the first. A goal from Preston was all that the Grizzlies could muster in this game, but outstanding goaltending from Jayden Schirmers gave his team a chance as again this game headed to overtime. Neither team could pot the winner in the extra frame and this game ended in a 1 - 1 tie. Next game is in Wellington on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. The Macâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bantam Grizzlies also headed up to Flesherton for a pair of road games after splitting the first two games with the Golden Eagles at home.

and lost by a final 2 - 1 score. In game two on Sunday, the Griz again found themselves down 2 - 1 going into the third. Sawkins opened the scoring for the Grizzlies in the first period after blasting a perfect shot past the Shallow Lake goalie. Thanks to some hard work and a goal by gifted centreman Phoenix Smith, the Grizzlies tied the game which set up an exciting overtime period. After killing two penalties, Smith was once again the hero as he skated the puck around the Lakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defenders and scored a beautiful goal to give his Grizzlies the win and a tie in the series. Assists during the game went to Dostaler, and Marek Skalba. The Grizzlies will take on the Lakers on Friday March 7th in Madoc at 6 p.m.

Artists honoured at Maple Syrup Festival Day (oil on canvas) was awarded to Lenni Workman of Warkworth. Gagnon said he was impressed with the large scale of this painting and the tension between the realism of the large red ďŹ&#x201A;owers and the abstraction of the vase with reďŹ&#x201A;ections. Coordination of the colours and the simpliďŹ ed background enhanced the subject. Best Painting called Running Water, (oil on canvas) was won by Jerry Albert, who has a studio in Baltimore and is a ďŹ rst-time winner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great on-site painting, easy technique and not contrived. It is a little bit of tucked-away landscape rendered with feeling,â&#x20AC;? said Gagnon. Best Photograph, called Winter Field

Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Warkworth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Marc L. Gagnon, a water colour and acrylic artist from Newcastle, selected the winners of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 14th Annual Maple Syrup Festival Art and Photography Show and Sale which took place in Warkworth at the Memorial Community Hall last Saturday. There were some ďŹ rst-time winners at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s juried event. Seventy-nine works of art were submitted from which Gagnon chose to include 45. Earlier in the morning he had given a free demonstration in abstract watercolour painting. The following are the winners: Best in Show called Red on a June

the texture and colouring of the stone was significant,” he noted. Honourable Mention, a painting called Look to the Coast (acrylic), was won by Sue Wilkins of Campellford, also a first-time winner. Gagnon said, “Sue has blended subtle textures and colour shifts to bring out the landscape with interesting land forms.” Honourable Mention in photography went to Sylvie Flynn, of Cobourg, another first-time winner, for her photo called Fallen. “This small photo is precious and subtle ... The photographer has a deep understanding of its strength in spite of its size,” said Gagnon. Honourable Mention for 3D/Mixed Media went to Christopher Thorpe for his work called Harvest Crows

(acrylic and photography). He too is a first-time winner. Gagnon commented, “This is an interesting way of addressing a found image and expanding it by adding painted objects (crows in this case) for more impact. It has a fabulous format and was a wise choice of photo.” The artists’ and photographers’ work, including the winners’ submissions, will be on display in the Memorial Community Hall on Saturday, March 8, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, March 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. At that time visitors will have the opportunity to vote for the art/photograph they think should win the People’s Choice Award.

Lifestyles - Nobody wants their dog strangled or their ash trees bored. Who would guess that Barn Swallows are threatened? Or that we might lose the Blanding’s Turtle, whose cute yellow throat used to be seen all over our wetlands. On March 13 in Belleville, Kate Pitt and Alison Kirkpatrick will help you identify invading species, defend against them, and protect native fish, animals and plants. This is the fourth in the Winter Speaker Series for the Hastings Stewardship Council.

Got Events?



Invading species are one of the greatest threats to the biodiversity of our waters and woodlands. Invading species can kill our native species, destroy habitats, and upset ecosystems because, in most cases, they have no natural predators or controls. Alison Kirkpatrick leads the Aquatic Invasive Species Outreach at the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters and manages the monitoring program. She will identify the worst culprits and best management practices for eastern Ontario.

Alison can help volunteers to track invasive species with EDDMaps, the new tracking website and smartphone app, developed in partnership with the Invading Species Centre, University of Georgia and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. It will allow users to take a picture of an invasive species, and automatically mark the location and send it for verification. Alison will profile the Emerald Ash Borer, Round Goby, Asian Carp, Garlic Mustard, Dog-strangling Vine, and others, including their impacts and identification. For example, the Round Goby competes with our native fish and has been implicated in outbreaks of botulism type E in Great Lakes fish and fisheating birds, resulting in large dieoffs of fish and birds. Kate Pitt is a Species at Risk Biologist with the Ministry of Natural Resources helping to protect and restore our more than 200 native species that are in trouble. Kate will be talking about specific upland songbirds at risk in Hastings County such as the Bobolink and Eastern Meadowlark, as well as other “backyard” birds and animals that you can help protect. Check out her updates on the Barn Swallow and Blanding’s Turtle. Farmers and landowners in Ontario can both serve and protect. Kate can answer questions about accommodating the needs of our species at risk while carrying out our daily work. The briefing takes place at the Township of Thurlow Community Centre at 516 Harmony Road, north of Belleville (and west off hwy. 37), on Thursday, March 13 at 7 pm. There is no cost, but donations will be gratefully accepted at the door. All are welcome to attend. For further information, please contact Matt Caruana at The Hastings Stewardship Council: 613-391-9034 or email: When native species are at risk, then people are at risk too.


Exploring the eye-popping French Riviera Lifestyles - The French Riviera, the Cote d’Azur, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Located along France’s beautiful southeastern coastline, where the majestic Alps visibly plunge into the deep blue Mediterranean Sea, it’s regarded as a luxurious, sophisticated, and trendy retreat for the rich and famous.  With its rugged coastline of sheer cliffs and magnificent beaches, the French Riviera is dotted with luxury homes, expensive yachts, and grand hotels. Some of the most popular tourist destinations along the French Riviera include Menton, a city of gardens that’s located in the extreme southeast of France, near the Italian border, with a warm climate that’s favourable to its tangerine, orange, and lemon groves, Antibes, a traditional Mediterranean Sea port city, with a medieval castle and narrow shopping streets, Juan les Pins with its Picasso Museum, housed in the Chateau Grimaldi, Cannes, home of the renowned Cannes Film Festival each May, where the Palme d’Or is awarded, Nice, the beautiful capital city of the French Riviera, where strollers can enjoy a seaside walk along the renowned Promenade des Anglais, the Principality of Monaco site of the palace, casino, and annual Monaco Grand Prix, Biot, renowned for its glass blowing and pottery, Grasse, often referred to as “the world fragrance capital”, St. Tropez, located on one of the most beautiful harbours on the Mediterranean, and Grimaud, a village that features a partially restored 11th century castle and borders the Gulf of St. Tropez. I used Nice, the capital city of the French Riviera, as my base, and I stayed at the Hotel Kyriad Nice Gare, an older hotel that was conveniently located very near to the train station and the city centre.  I found that my room was a good size, with a large bed, and I was pleased that there was free wi-fi included and breakfast, too.  From here I went on a walking tour of the city with Nadja Graf, of Tourism Nice, and she pointed out many of the city’s major points of interest, including the nearby Russian Orthodox Church (completed in 1912), the narrow streets of its Old Town, its Market Square, where the morning market booths were replaced by afternoon dining areas, Castle Hill, which we ascended for a spectacular view of the city and coastline, and its promenade along the city’s large harbour and beach area.  I was surprised to find that there was no sand on this popular beach, for it was entirely stones.  However, Nadja told me that the locals soon became very accustomed to this and many were seen sunning in this stony landscape or even walking barefoot.  I was also surprised that, although I was in a very touristy area, the city’s buses were very cheap (1.5 Euros) and its museums were actually free! As I explored Nice with Nadja, I also learned that this, the largest city on the Riviera, hosts a very famous Jazz Festival annually and a very popular Carnival, too. I also came to the conclusion that visitors who are interested in art will want to check out Nice’s Chagall Museum, Matisse Museum, and Fine Arts Museum.  These same visitors will not want to miss Place Massena, either, a large square that features sev-

en statues of men atop high pedestals. This represents the seven continents of the world, is entitled “Continents in Conversation with Nice”, and is illuminated at night in bright, changing colours. Since I had a rail pass, I found Nice to be a convenient ‘home base’ on the French Riviera, and it was just a short rail ride to other worthwhile destinations, such as Cannes and Monaco.  I found that a lot of trains travelled through Nice on a daily basis, adding to the convenience.  I also discovered that the International Nice-Riviera Airport, located in Nice, makes this particular destination on the French Riviera a very convenient air travel stop, too, for it’s the second largest airport in all of France and a major international hub.  While in this beautiful area, I also travelled westward, along the coastline, to Toulon, near the most southerly point of the French Riviera and here I checked out its pedestrian shopping area, its military port, fortress, and some of its many old fountains. After all, it’s often referred to as the City of Fountains.  I’d also recommend a visit to Saint Maxime, located at the northern end of the Gulf of St. Tropez, a mere 10 minute ferry ride from St. Tropez, and the island of Marguerite where the Man in the Iron Mask was incarcerated, just a The beach at Nice, on the French Riviera. 20-minute boat ride from Cannes.  Also worthwhile would be a visit to Le Trayas, a village from which you’ll view the stunning red rocks of Esterel and nearby is the Comiche de l’Esterel, one of the most beautiful roads and coastline drives found in the south A view of Monaco’s Fortress. of France.

I stayed in Nice’s Hotel Kyriad, conveniently located near the train station.

Art demonstration serves as preview for watercolour workshop Lifestyles – Warkworth – For the fourth year in a row, Spirit of the Hills hosted a free art demonstration in the Warkworth Town Hall Centre for the Arts. Marc L. Gagnon, a full time watercolour and acrylic painter currently residing in Newcastle, presented a two-hour demonstration on abstraction in watercolour. While 15 people watched and listened, he developed a scene from Lake Superior into an inspiring and imaginative work of art. Using wide brushes, pure pigment with little water, he scrubbed his way to creating a rock face. Paper towels, spray bottles, patience and time, all contributed to creating interesting textures, and a dynamic image. After lunch, Gagnon walked to the Memorial Community Hall in the village to judge the submissions for the 14th Annual Maple Syrup Festival Juried Art & Photography Show and Sale. In 2011, Spirit of the Hills received funding from Heritage Canada in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the Warkworth Maple Syrup Festival. This became the beginning of the free art demonstrations held the weekend prior to the traditional Maple Syrup Festival at Sandy Flat Sugar Bush. Thanks to this initial federal art grant, Spirit of the Hills has continued under its own steam to create interesting Judge Marc Gagnon, from left, talks to photographer Tom Groot about his photo Cat in Provence. art demonstrations during the past three years including Other local photographers Robert Laycock and Mary Weilandt join the event.

Petes help HBPS students shut out bullying By Bill Freeman

News - Havelock - Havelock Belmont Public School students got a big-time assist from the Peterborough Petes in their efforts to raise awareness about bullying and to highlight the importance of being a good citizen. Centre Matt McCartney and defenseman Steven Varga spent part of Pink Day at the school signing autographs and talking about the importance of teamwork and leadership in dealing with bullies. “We’re trying to do a broader piece with this [Pink Day] and putting it together with the Petes is a good way to address teamwork and working together,” principal Darryl Whitney said. In the fall, Whitney said HBPS did a “full session” about anti-bullying and decided to enlarge on that “and make it more about the team and look at character attributes, specifically respect and responsibility.” “We wanted to make it an even bigger day and not just about wearing pink and not just talking about bullying but talking about citizenship. Being a good citizen means being respectful, responsible and being a good person.” “We love it,” McCartney said about visiting elementary schools. “It’s not a big part of our day but I’m sure it’s a big part of the day for them. We like doing it and getting a good message across; it’s perfect. “It’s always good to have good role models to look up to,” the Scarborough native said. “Teamwork is a big part of everything especially with bullying,” he said. “If everyone

stands up and sticks together then no one is going to be singled out; that’s pretty much what teamwork is.” McCartney also said leadership plays a key role in tackling bullying head-on. “If the leader is doing the right thing and leading the right way that takes care of bullying right away.” Lessons from sports definitely carry over into everyday life, McCartney said. “Hockey is a good foundation for making friends.” You can’t be a bystander when it comes to putting the check on bullying, you’ve got to step up and help the victim, he said. “Take your role, be a leader and tell those who are trying to make other people feel bad to think about what you’re doing.” Grade 1 teacher Jenny Pink helped organize events at the school. “We talk about, on a daily basis, the strategies that children and adults can use but at the end of the day it’s really about being a good person and how we can work together as a team. We just want to keep that conversation going and let the kids have some fun. “It’s nice to put some familiar faces to it like hockey players. This is a big hockey community so it’s [good that students] know that they have the some of the same struggles that we have sometimes and we can learn from other people what they do to make good choices.” “This is a time to pause and think about the things we can say and do on a daily basis [to make us better people]. It carries on with lifelong friends, it carries on at home.”

Iron Chef challenge provides high school students with real life experience By Steve Jessel

News – Belleville – The whirring of knives and the quiet hum of a busy kitchen were the focus of the annual Loyalist Iron Chef contest this past week, where high school students from PECI, Peterborough and Kingston faced off in a battle royale to determine the region’s top student chefs. “The goal of the event is to keep inspiration with high school students and promote the culinary program at this school as well as others, we just want to keep this industry alive as much as possible,” said Loyalist second-year culinary student Brennan Roy,

who helped organize the competition with other culinary students. “It’s to give them that rush, that excitement of getting something done in a time limit, and challenging yourself as much as possible.” Student teams were tasked to create a threecourse menu using a set list of ingredients, and were then judged on their taste and presentation of their food along with their professionalism in the kitchen. “Teamwork is huge in the kitchen and the food industry,” Brennan said when asked what a common mistake students might make is in the kitchen. “You defi-

nitely need to keep in contact with all your team members and know what they’re doing, and they need to know what you’re doing. Communication is key.” For Grade 11 PECI student Jared Hartley, the competition was his second kick at the can after also competing in 2013. He said managing stress levels was key to succeeding in the competition. “In the big scheme of things, how is it going to work out? If you need to redo something, can it be done in time?” Hartley said. “It’s about getting that experience.” Experience is something that St. Peter’s chef Cathy Rose said students get in spades during the competition. Rose was particularly praising of the opportunity for students to get professional feedback on their dishes during preliminary rounds earlier in the year, and said that Loyalist’s competition is the only one that she knows of that gives students that opportunity. “The one thing that this competition does is it builds self esteem like no other competition,” she said. “They can go away knowing they put out plates that were high calibre, restaurant worthy food.” When the smoke had cleared, it was Rose’s St. Peter’s team that took home top honours, followed by PECI

in second. The St. Peter’s menu included a mushroom ragout in a paprika rubbed pancetta ring finished with squash frites and leek oil, a paprika rubbed pork tenderloin served with herb whipped potatoes, organic

heirloom carrots, maple fig sauce and a rich pan jus, and for dessert, flour-less paprika infused dark chocolate cake with an orange mascarpone cream. Members of the winning team were each awarded

a $500 Loyalist bursary applicable to any Loyalist program, as well as gift certificates to be used toward kitchen equipment and supplies for their school.

Quinte West Home and Leisure show set for weekend of April 25-27 Events – Trenton – The 33rd Annual Quinte West Home and Leisure Show will take place April 25-27 at the Community Gardens in Trenton, hosted by the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce and the Trenton Kiwanis Club. As we look forward to the signs of spring, it’s a great time to be planning new projects around your home and garden. “This show provides wonderful inspiration as it allows visitors to see the latest trends in home updates, and learn about lifestyle enhancements from a wide range of vendors,” says event coordinator Jillian McCormick
 The show has become a regional favourite offering great value to vendors and visitors.  The cost of admission is $3 per person

and children of any age are free. One special attendee will start their spring renovations off right with a chance to win $1,000 Home Show Bucks when they visit the show. Home Show Bucks work like cash and can be spent at any vendor in the show. Two arenas will be full of products and services for your home renovation projects and leisure activities plus upstairs is the Quinte Women’s Show.  Each year the Quinte West Home and Leisure Show has over 100 vendors showcasing their products or services and attracts nearly 3,000 visitors to the Trenton arena. “There is a great variety in this years’ show covering everything from gardens and landscape design, roofing, general contrac-

tors, pools and hot tubs, custom windows, and much more,” says Chamber Manager Suzanne Andrews. “Sometimes it is hard to know who you are getting into business with, this show provides a great opportunity for the public to meet face to face with local businesses and industry professionals, talk to them about ideas, ask questions, and evaluate companies without commitment or having to set up appointments at your home.”   The show hours are Friday, April 25 from 5 to 9 p.m., Saturday, April 26 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, April 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Vendor spaces are still available.

Trent Hills resident saw Sochi Olympics from behind the camera lens By John Campbell

Hastings – You can thank Brian Tyson for some of the great television moments you saw during the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. Not as an athlete but as a cameraman. The Hastings-area resident was a member of the camera crews hired by Olympic Broadcast Services to produce world feeds of the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as the medal ceremonies that took place daily. The opening ceremonies were “pretty impressive” and the artistic pieces that included some “amazing projections” onto the floor of the arena were “spectacular,” Tyson said. “It was a very enjoyable experience,” he said, but for a cameraman, also “very challenging.” He arrived in Russia six weeks before the Games began Feb. 7 because they needed people there in advance “to start blocking all the camera positions” for the opening ceremonies which were “extremely complex.” Based on what he and the camera crew saw in rehearsals –“sometimes things worked, sometimes they didn’t” – they were left crossing their fingers that “it was going to work,” Tyson said. In the end it “was pretty well

flawless,” apart from “the big thing everybody remembers,” one of the gigantic Olympic rings not opening as planned – a malfunction “not much different” from what happened during the official opening of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver in 2010, he said. It marked the second time Tyson has worked the Olympics; his first was Calgary in 1988 for CTV. Born in Coventry, England, Tyson emigrated to Canada in 1968 and worked as a salesman for a pharmaceutical manufacturer before deciding to try making a living out of his hobby and becoming a still photographer. He studied photographic arts at Ryerson University in the early 1970s but then took “a slight detour” in his career path and spent the next 35 years working as a freelance cameraman in motion pictures, film and television production. Tyson has shot thousands of TV shows – drama, variety, sports, talk, game, reality and awards – for seemingly every Canadian and American network, as well as commercials, documentaries, educational films and corporate videos. His resume includes So You Think Can Dance, Open Mike with Mike Bullard (for six years),

the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, Just for Laughs, and, currently, the Ron James Show. He does not have any favourites. “I’ve always enjoyed whatever show I was doing,” Tyson said. “I can’t remember too many times when I’ve got up in the morning and said I don’t want to go to work today.” Getting into the business was “not a tough go” but he wouldn’t want to be starting out now. There’s more competition and “the whole business has changed” because the networks “don’t want to train anybody,” preferring to hire freelancers such as himself “who already know how to do the work.” Now approaching 70, the “semi-retired” Tyson and his wife, Barbara Klatt, own and operate a market garden farm east of Hastings, growing organic fruits and vegetables. He’s pursuing still photography “more seriously” these days, as a member of Spirit of the Hills and as a blogger ( The website is his “business card” that lets people know what kind of photography he does. His favourite images are in black and white, which he finds “more aesthetically pleasing.”

Brian Tyson can now say he’s been to Russia but he really didn’t get to see much of the country, despite being there for more than two months. He was too busy working as a cameraman at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, shooting the opening and closing ceremonies as well as the daily medal ceremonies. Photo: Submitted. Right: The Olympic Cauldron featured a light show in shades of five colours, Russian classical music, and a fountain that shot water 60 metres into the air. Photo: Brian Tyson
